Q8: YA fantasy/sci fi. The opening pages were a little slow and didn’t immediately engage me. I did find the premise interesting. I’ll revisit this one. #tenqueries

Q3; Adult fiction (?). The query didn't really talk about the novel, but mentioned other books by the author. The story goes right into action/plot, which didn't grab my attention. Pass #tenqueries

Jordy Albert @bluedragonfly81 · Jan 29

Q2: YA Epic (fantasy?). Just from the synopsis I can tell that this isn't my cup of tea. The opening pages had a lot telling v showing, and were confusing. Pass. #tenqueries

Jordy Albert @bluedragonfly81 · 30 Oct 2017
